Award-winning King Tommy to sign books

By Steve Peacock in Entertainment

The handsome star of a TV documentary planning a book signing session at Sunday’s Totnes Show should give visitors paws for thought.

For the hero of the new book is a dog.

King Tommy, recently scooped the award for the most handsome dog in show in the Scrufts competition for cross breed dogs – part of the world famous Crufts Show.

He was also filmed in Totnes as part of a Channel 4 documentary called Scrufts – Britain’s favourite dog.

Now King Tommy is the hero pf a book penned by his Totnes artist owner Monique Nerman – who rescued the four-legged favourite in India.

She and King Tommy will be doing a book singing session at the show where last year he was the show’s Best rescue dog, said Monique.

“King Tommy is going to be a VIP at the Totnes Agricultural Show this year on Sunday and we will be doing book signings with our new book King Tommy,” she said.

King Tommy was a street dog in Goa in India where 50-year-old Monique was living some seven years ago.

She rescued him after seeing that he had been abused and now he is a therapy dog, helping people.

Monique said the book was “an amazing story of love and survival about a small Indian dog who became a therapy dog and a canine celebrity”.
